I had a dream, but now that dream is gone from me.

First of all, any self respecting Bulldog hates Bob Bradley just a little bit. Just a little bit. While some might make the argument "well, he did the best he could" or "he got us a lot more success than previous coaches." Colorado Rapids fans only have to remember one name, ONE NAME, which blows a gaping hole into the side of any argument for good Old Bob:


Yes, four more years of Robbie Findley.

The guy whose claim to fame is one beautiful pass in his entire time in a USMNT shirt. In a friendly. Against Turkey. Im sure you can Youtube it. Just search under "the only thing Robbie Findley has ever done".

We remember, Bob, how you selected him over any other striker you could have had (Casey...Ching...) and even played him over Herculez Gomez and Edson Buddle (who were two of the most in-form strikers on that squad at the time). We Rapids fans recall cringing whenever we saw his name pop up on the screen.

Maybe a little bit because you left the man whose two goals qualified us for the World Cup at home.

Thats right, the man who snubbed Denvers own Conor Casey, and instead signed up Robbie Findley is in charge for another 4 years.

So no, Im not happy about this re-signing by Bob Bradley. Because, Robbie Findley.

Oh, and Bornstien.

And who could forget this disaster?

Delicious. Four more years of this.

Of course. Of course. Im going to hope to be surprised. Im going to hope that Robo-Bob somehow just pulls out an amazing performance and somehow starts making tactical decisions that are so awesome they make Joachim Leow just look like...


I support the US Team. Absolutely. But we deserved better than 4 more years of Bob Bradley. We deserved to take another step in US Soccer history. Yes, we got farther and performed better than before, but weve got to capitalize on that growth, not simply (at BEST) repeat it.
